Go check out Daily Grace’s Youtube channel. She’s funny shit. Erm… not shit. Person. She’s a person. A funny person.
Here are a few more images of the IKEA flat packed house I posted about on Saturday.
What… about it?

THE IKEA HOUSE // “The design for Ikea’s new Aktiv home includes a bedroom, an en suite bathroom, and an open living room, kitchen and dining room area. It measures 53ft by 14ft and comes with two large walk-in storage cupboards.”
You know I love IKEA products an unhealthy amount, but as a student of architecture I can’t tell how I feel about this IKEA house. Speaking from the standpoint of someone who lives in the United States where ‘bigger is better’, I like the idea of smaller, efficient living spaces common in Europe and other parts of the world being made more accessible to the American public. On the other hand, mass produced, cookie cutter houses, albeit updated, more interesting, and efficient than what you’d find in the typical United States suburb, make me uneasy. Their utter convenience (and lower price) threatens us architectural design folk. I don’t foresee a huge influx of these homes taking over suburbia in the States, but the thought is still unsettling to me.
